    The ink was better than the coffee.

    Despite a busy weekend schedule, I still found some time to tinker.

    This nib was lying around for a long time with me.



    I once made it out of aPelikan M100 and a M200 nib, but could never offer it a permanent home in the form of a suitable fountain pen. Since I have been drawing a lot lately, I wanted to change that.

    A quick look in the parts box brought the following to light:



    The barrel of a defective M200 (the piston mechanism was gone)
    the heavy used cap of a Pelikan 400NN
    and the piston housing and piston knob of a Pelikan 140

    I shortened the empty piston housing, slightly reduced the diameter on the lathe, and permanently glued it into the empty M200 barrel. I freed the 140's rotary knob from its spindle and screwed it onto the protruding thread of the piston housing with a little silicone grease. Surprise! The barrel was airtight.

    So I quickly screwed in the nib unit and filled the pen from the back with the syringe. (You can fit a lot of ink in there!) I took Platinum Carbon Black, because I really like this waterproof ink.

    And the Pelikan Eyedropper with double nib was ready. Perfect for drawing, quick notes, reminders, labeling, envelopes and much more...






    (...as if I didn't have enough fountain pens to write with already!)

    Brilliantly done - perhaps Pelikan's Skunkworks team is taking notes
    I have to lookup if you have share more about this nib - it is my favorite type and similar to Monty Winnfields Seagull nib.
